This Sunday’s Philly Farm & Food Fest (tickets $15 in advance/$20 at the door) isn’t just a great place to meet farmers, sample food and learn about local sustainable businesses, it’s also a great opportunity to come and say hi to your friends here at Grid magazine, and maybe pick up some Grid gear. We'll be unveiling our limited edition waxed canvas tote bags, from South Philadelphia's Fabric Horse. Hand-crafted from recycled materials, these totes feature a special Grid color combination, four pockets, vinyl interior, a snap closure and sturdy seatbelt handles. Specially priced at $75 for PF3, they're perfect to fit in your bike basket and carry home your PF3 haul.
We will also be offering a great deal on an old favorite: classic Grid T-shirts (right) at a special PF3 price of just $10 — that's half off! There will also be other T-shirts for sale (above, $20), as well as a small number of ridiculously cute Grid onesies ($10) so your kid can be sustainable from the get-go!
This year’s PF3 will be even bigger than last year's, and that’s a lot to cover. So when you need a break, look for the Grid Magazine booth, located right by the Hall "G"entrance to the Fest, on the Broad Street side. There’s nothing we like more than meeting our readers in person, and PF3 is a great place to do that. So if you're a Grid reader, stop by and tell us what’s on your mind: What do you love about Grid? What do you wish we could do more of? Tell us your favorite place to pick up Grid, and where you wish you could pick it up — maybe we can start distributing it there. You can even tell us the things you don't like about Grid (but then just tell us again about what you love — we’re kind of insecure sometimes). And if you’re not a Grid reader, we'll be on hand to answer that perennial question, “What the heck is Grid?”
So while you’re out there, free to move about, don't forget us Grid folks, stuck in our lovely booth, waiting to see you. And if our sparkling personalities aren't enough to entice you to visit, just keep telling yourself: half-price T-shirts and limited edition totes. See you there!
